    A class act to win the race with no stirrups. Kept his horse at the back, made steady headway and never thought of giving up. I don’t know what price he was in running, but to race over a circuit under such circumstances and still win the race, left me speechless.

    Well done, Hugh!

    Tremendous, coming round the home turn I was thinking he must have something in the tank if he’s persevering !!!

    One for the best ride of the year poll in December. And it will take a good one to beat it.

    We should have a whip round for Hugh because as one wag on twitter has said “he won’t be claiming the childrens allowance” :-D

    Hugh Morgan and his bruised organ.

    This will be a good display of recency bias when nobody even nominates this for Ride of the Year in December.

    Not if he was gelded prior to his riding career.

    I’ve just watched the race, it’s got to be the ride of the year.
    I doubt many would even have carried on without irons after the
    1st fence. Outstanding horsemanship from Hugh :good:

    The horse touched 500 in-running at Betfair Exchange – that helps quantify the scale of the achievement, I feel.

    Just watched the replay, that was an absolutely brilliant riding performance, fully agree with Ruby who gave him 110 out of 10 for it!
    Great achievement,he shouldn’t be a 5lb claimer for much longer.
